One Step Closer

AppleIf the Times has it right, tomorrow may see us a little bit closer to that dream device I longed for a while back (more than a year ago, in fact). No, it’s not yet the all-in-one phone/iPod/PDA/electronic wallet I predicted, but it may be at least trending in that direction.

Of course, both my phone and my iPod are doing just fine right now, so I don’t see myself as an early adopter. Add in the PDA, though, and I’ll gladly toss my problematic Tungsten T3 out the window. The electronic wallet? You’ll have a friend for life (okay, as if they didn’t already).

Of course, it’s also conceivable that the buzz may be completely wrong; we’ll all just have to wait and see. Stay tuned for updates...

Update: Okay, so the buzz was pretty much right on the money. And I’ll readily concede that the iPod nano is really cool. But I’m not about to shell out $250 — after signing a two-year service contract — for what basically amounts to a cell phone/Shuffle combo. Part of me thinks they could have just duct-taped a nano onto the back of a regular cell phone and you’d have something more impressive (hey, I’ll have to get working on that). I’m more encouraged by the car stereo interfaces promised in the coming months. “Honey... I think we need a new car...”
